How Should You Address A Gap In Your Smile?

A smile gap can draw undesired attention, and leave you feeling dissatisfied with your appearance. Many people fear that an issue with the spacing of their teeth can only be corrected with metal braces. In some cases, braces will be the best approach to fixing alignment problems, but you may have other treatment options. Cosmetic dental work can lead to big smile improvements, and your dentist can help you address a surprising number of issues. However, if your gap does call for orthodontic work, you may be able to seek Invisalign treatment, rather than using metal braces. With Invisalign, you can enjoy a discreet adjustment, as the clear aligners used in the procedure can escape the notice of others.

Will A Spacing Problem Always Require Orthodontic Treatment?

Your dentist can examine your smile, and see what approach you should take to fixing a smile gap. In some cases, Invisalign might be the ideal solution. Invisalign treatment has become popular with patients because they can enjoy orthodontic work without unattractive, unmovable metal braces. You can wear your aligners discreetly throughout the day, and you can remove them when you need to clean your teeth, or whenever your eat.

Using Porcelain Veneers To Address A Spacing Problem

Your dentist may be able to hide a gap in your smile with porcelain veneers. By using veneers, you can enjoy a completed treatment after just two appointments. Veneers provide natural-looking, attractive covers for dental flaws. In addition to helping you close a gap in your smile, they can resolve problems with the color of your teeth, as well as concerns about their shape, size, and condition.
